Interpreting Brexit July 8, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
I really like this quote from a letter to the CPGB PCC about Brexit:
In 1972 Tom Nairn wrote: “to be in favour of Europe … does not imply surrender to or alliance with the left’s enemies. It means exactly the opposite. It signifies recognising and meeting them as enemies for what they are, upon the terrain of reality and the future” (my emphasis, ‘The left against Europe?’ New Left Review No75).
Meanwhile, here’s an interesting overview of the referendum result from the same source. I have to admit I found the CPGB for all its curiosities one of the most level headed and measured of all those analysing the issue before during and after. And one of the most realistic in terms of the outcome.
